Default Best ballistics app

On the app store i see you can get ballistics apps that are free and some that are up to $40. Are the free apps good enough or is it worth spending the money on a good ballistics app?

Strelok pro. Worth the money
Applied. Also worth the money
Of the two I like strelok better for some of the features. Both give good solutions out your input data is good

I use Ballistic AE.
Definitely worth the price of admission

I posed a similar question not long ago. Personally I use and like BallisticsARC (the free version) but Iím only shooting one rifle to 550 yards so far. If you need a basic hunting rifle drop chart, it works great.

Strelok is highly recommended and Iíve seen it work, if you are or want to be a serious long range shooter itís probably worth the money.
DEER!!! No...nope. Hay bale.

I use StrelokPro as well. Great app and comes with hundreds of factory ammoís downloaded in the app. Just scroll down and pick your ammo your shooting then save it to that rifle. Then itís all preloaded for when you go out, pick whatever rifle youíre shooting and itís ready to go.

I am still using the free version of Strelock on my phone and JBM on the PC for detailed work and to produce range cards. Strelock works fine but to be honest, at least for hunting, taping a drop card to the stock is WAY faster than trying to pull stuff up on your phone.
